Andrew King

Andrew King

Director of Performance Research, D-Wave

This webinar will discuss the latest research on a class of intractable large-scale optimization problems on its AdvantageTM quantum system, which has 5,000+ qubits. Andrew will examine the recent collaborative research between D-Wave and Boston University and highlight how this marks a significant achievement for quantum technology, as it demonstrates a computational advantage over classical approaches.

Andrew King is Director of Performance Research at D-Wave, which he joined in 2013.  He received his Ph.D. from McGill University, for work in graph theory and algorithms.  His groundbreaking work in quantum simulation combines methods in physics and computer science, and his peer-reviewed work on the subject has been published in journals that include Nature and Science. 

Open Q&A discussion.
